Eclipse Internet protects customers from millions of threatening emails Tuesday 12 August 2008 PDF Print Eclipse Internetsuccessfully blocked 98.2 per cent of spam emails from reaching customers’ inboxes during the month of July - equivalent to over 503 million emails. Eclipse’s anti-spam/anti-virus solution provides customers with better protection from potentially threatening email, viruses and trojans, reducing the nuisance factor caused by spam and helping to safeguard customers’ systems and data. As well as identifying and blocking a large proportion of spam before it reaches customers’ mailboxes, the anti-virus/anti-spam solution allows customers to check and delete suspect mail before it can do any damage. Clodagh Murphy, Director of Broadband Operations at Eclipse comments, “Spam email is a real nuisance and can pose a security threat to customers. Unsolicited email unfortunately is becoming more prolific as internet usage continues to increase. At Eclipse, we try to ease the pain for our customers with our very effective anti-virus/anti-spam solution.” Monitoring the levels of spam is just one of the key business performance measures that are published on the Eclipse web site and forms part of the Eclipse service promise to its customers.
